Clinton, Kobach spar in social media flap over voting rights

Pantsuit in a twist? It never ceases to amaze me that Kobach and Brownback almost daily try to out do each other for the dumbest statements by a GOP.

Officials don't want Guantanamo Bay detainees in Kansas

Doesn't Kansas need the money? Surely they can blackmail the feds.

KU basketball notebook: Perry Ellis ranked 15th nationally; Tyshawn Taylor arrested

Just imagine what might have been had either Self or Marshall signed all four.

Kansas launching campaign to boost child support collections

Guys have to have regular, steady, above the table, paying jobs. Nothing magic about that. SRS (is that still around) and local District Attorneys simply need direct access to Dept of Labor records.

Kobach to start voter fraud prosecutions in September

Let's see if he has anything. My guess is that he's going to find students who registered and voted in Kansas, but were still registered at their parents' addresses elsewhere. Or he's going to have a bunch of similar names. Given that 2010 was a GOP blowout - he's likely only going to find GOP fraud. I'd like to see what he has, because he and a bunch of GOP Secrs of State are sharing his duplicate voter lists to strike voters from the 2016 election.

All counties in Kansas allowing same-sex marriage licenses, but state not yet allowing name changes, joint tax returns

This is where the real rub is going to be. Who gets tax benefits? Can a state treat some couplings and couplings with children different from other couplings? Of course the "no income tax" crowd has the easiest solution, though not the best. Will be interesting if the states choose this as their next battle.

Kansas representative faces hearing over 'racist' remarks

I wonder if the legislature will take into account the shooting yesterday in SC. Granted they aren't related, but maybe common sense dictates to leave this one alone and move on to the big issues.

Kansas House approves new tax plan after governor's plea

It's the principle of the thing. Those d@#% job creators didn't keep their end of the bargain. They promised a free pony, or something like that. It just occurred to me that this is consistent with Kansas history. Poor Coronado searched in vain for El Dorado. The GOP still hasn't managed to pave the roads in gold.

Kansas House approves new tax plan after governor's plea

I just realized that guy's name is Henchman. Bet he had a rough time in middle school.

Kansas House approves new tax plan after governor's plea

"Nationally, Kansas is not the model any state is looking to follow right now," said Joseph Henchman, a vice president at the Washington-based Tax Foundation. "What have you gained if you've cut taxes and the state becomes insolvent?"
National Democratic bumper sticker "Kansas is not the model for any state." Or "Come to Kansas. See the GOP endgame."
